  • A chance to see the infamous tree climbing lions of Manyara and the Serengeti

  • Dates scheduled around the wildebeest migration
The Classic Tanzania Safari tour starts and ends in Arusha. The Classic Tanzania Safari is a Wildlife Safaris And Game Drives tour that takes 8 days taking you through Arusha, Tanzania and other destinations in Tanzania.

Our safari starts with Lake Manyara and its fantastic birdlife with over 400 recorded species. From here we continue to the Serengeti National Park. Tanzania’s flagship park is contiguous with the Masai Mara and it is not uncommon to see lions, cheetahs or even leopards. The giant caldera of the Ngorongoro Crater boasts stunning scenery as well as prolific wildlife, whilst Tarangire National Park is famous for its herds of elephants which can number in the hundreds.

Julie Kersey
5 - Excellent
“This was not only our first trip with Exodus but our first safari and we were not disappointed. We were well looked after and our leader and drivers were extremely knowledgable which made for a very enjoyable and interesting trip. It was a busy schedule visiting four different areas, Lake Manyara, the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and finally Tarangire Safari Park, each one slightly different. Our group were in two Land Cruisers on Game Drives every day, we could sit and enjoy the scenery and stop to watch an amazing amount of wildlife. It was a privilege to see the wildebeest migrating it was amazing to see them across the plains on the Serengeti as far as the eye could see; a photograph just couldn't capture the image, you had to just spend time looking at the view. I would certainly go on a safari again.”
Tanzania tented safari
1 - Very poor
“My overall experience of this trip was 'satisfactory' only because I saw lots of animals. Our Landrover though was ancient, slow and needed stones behind the wheel to hold it when parked. We were in a group of 3 vehicles and the petrol tank fell of off one and meant that 7 people had to be accommodated in the other 2 for 4 hours on very rough roads. The breaks on another were so questionable it had to be replace (with another old vehicle) None of the drivers were in charge and because of this departure times etc were chaotic because different drivers have different instructions and would only travel together. The Exodus rep on arrival was poor, reading out the trip notes and giving no additional information. She was more concerned in us appointing a leader who would collect all tips straight away for the whole trip (thousands of dollars) - we refused. We were in tents five nights not four. One of the tents (2 nights) had seen better days. Packed lunches were left for hours in the sun. We spent hours travelling on roads - exacerbated because of the age of the vehicles which could not travel at speed - we were overtaken constantly.”

“Animal viewing was phenomenal.Toilet facilities at public sites not as good as the ones we brought along!”
Terrific Tanzania!
5 - Excellent
“This trip offered an amazing wildlife spectacle! It definitely boosted my photography porfolio which was my objective. Listening to lions roar at night was amazing! Seeing Cheetah, Lions and Leapords all before breakfast was something I will never forget.”
Today is spent in Arusha.There is a free afternoon to relax, lie by the pool or explore the town*Comfortable Hote*
This morning we drive from Arusha to Lake Manyara National Park (approx. 2.5 hours), one of Tanzania’s more intimate parks. The lake shore teems with birds and the park is famous for its elusive tree-climbing lions. There is also a surprising number of large mammals and the striking cliffs of the Rift escarpment form a dramatic backdrop to our first experience of the region's magnificent wildlife.*Migunga permanent camp or similar*
En route through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area we stop to visit Olduvai Gorge. It is within this steep sided ravine that Louis and Mary Leakey made some of the world’s most important archaeological discoveries in the 1950s. Here in a small museum we are able to see evidence of our ancestors that have been dated back 2.5 million years. Then we head into the Serengeti National Park arriving after lunch. The rest of the afternoon is spent game viewing amongst the vast plains that are broken only by acacia trees and the occasional kopje (rock formation). In January and February we will normally meet the migration with large herds of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle. There are always plenty of resident animals, such as giraffe, buffalo, and elephant, as well as many large predators such as lion, cheetah, and leopard.*Ikoma permanent camp or similar*
We have another full day in this wonderful park, rising early to make the most of our time. Our guides will choose the best spotting locations for the time of year; we can spend time at the Hippo pool watching these majestic animals laze about in the water happily living alongside the crocodiles, watch a big pride of lions,be in the middle of the migration, surrounded by wildebeest and zebras. We journey from the wide open plains to the kopjes: these volcanic rocky outcrops provide protection and shelter for a wide variety of animals and from the top we can see out across the vast grasslands of the Serengeti. This diverse and interesting landscape will provide us with the ultimate in game viewing, we will hopefully see all of the plain game; elephants, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, lions, cheetah and if you are lucky the elusive leopard, as well as huge amounts of interesting bird life such as the elegant secretary birds and the flightless ostrich.*Ikoma permanent camp or similar*
We have a final game drive in the Serengeti before heading back into the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and to the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater where we spend the night.*Rhino Lodge or similar*
Sleeping near the Ngorongoro Crater means that we are one of the first vehicles to descend into the caldera. Ngorongoro is a conservation area rather than a national park. This means that whole area is managed for both the animals and the local Maasai people who graze their cattle alongside the indigenous wildlife. During the drive down to the crater floor we will gain a glimpse of the Maasai’s lifestyle. The crater walls provide a natural sanctuary for the animals, which means there is plenty to see: lions, elephants, buffalo, rhino and leopard (if you are lucky enough). The only animal you won’t see in here is a giraffe, whose long legs are unable to cope with the steeps sides of the crater. Later this afternoon we will leave the crater.*Migunga permanent camp or similar*
Today we head to Tarangire National Park. The park, which has its own source of water, comes into its own in the dry season as birdlife congregate on the Tarangire River and herds of giraffe, zebra, buffalo and, in particular, elephant can be seen. Predators such as lions and leopards are also regularly spotted here.Our lodge is located within the park. It has a large look out area from where sundowners can be had whilst watching the game on the sweeping plains below.*Tarangire Safari Lodge or similar*
We begin with an early morning game drive in Tarangire where we should see more game, before heading back towards Arusha and, for those on the group flights, Kilimanjaro Airport in time to catch our flight home.
